BACK EXAM IV – PRICE 1. Given the table of thermodynamic data for the reaction: B 2 O 3 (s) + 6 HF(g) Æ 2 BF 3 (g) + 3 H 2 O(l), answer the questions that follow. B 2 O 3 (s) HF(g) BF 3 (g) H 2 O(l) Δ H o f (kJ/mol) –1273 –271 –1137 –286 S o (J/mol.K) +54 +174 +254 +70. (a) Is this an exothermic or an endothermic reaction? (b) Is the entropy change for this reaction positive or negative? (c) Calculate Δ S o surr at a temperature of 25 o C. (d) Based upon your answers to questions (a) , (b) , and (c) , what can you say about the spontaneity of the reaction at 25 o C? (e) Show that the reaction is non-spontaneous at a temperature of 350 o C. (f) Will increasing the temperature above 350 o C make this reaction spontaneous? Explain. (g) What is the range of temperatures for which this reaction is spontaneous?
